    Just to make sure you totally understand the explanations below, here are a couple of definitions:

    • derivative‘ – [something that is based on another source]
    • attribution‘ – [the action of ascribing a work or remark to a particular author, artist, or person]

     

    Attribution: You let others copy, distribute, display, and perform your copyrighted work—and derivative works based upon it—but only if they give credit the way you request.  [The Material can be distributed and modified, even commercially, providing you give credit]

    Share Alike: You allow others to distribute derivative works only under a license identical to the license that governs your work.

    Non-Commercial: You let others copy, distribute, display, and perform your work—and derivative works based upon it—but for non-commercial purposes only.

    No Derivative Works: You let others copy, distribute, display, and perform only verbatim copies of your work, not derivative works based upon it.  [Others must not change your work in anyway.  They can also receive income]

    Public Domain Dedication: The person who associated a work with this deed has dedicated the work to the public domain by waiving all of his or her rights to the work worldwide under copyright law, including all related and neighboring rights, to the extent allowed by law. You can copy, modify, distribute and perform the work, even for commercial purposes, all without asking permission.

     

     

    Now lets combine a few

    Attribution-NoDerivs: The work can be used unchanged, even commercially, providing

    you give credit.  [Others can use your material but they cannot alter or change it.  They also cannot receive money from your project]

     

    Attribution-ShareAlike: The work can be distributed and modified, even commercially, so long as modified versions are licensed under the same terms, providing you give credit.

    Attribution-NonCommercial: The work can be distributed and modified on non-commercial terms, providing you give credit.

  • NING.com – Your Social Media

    “The oldest online communities are 30 years old.  If you build a genuine community, with a strong sense of belonging, a large number of volunteers, and keep it fresh and interesting, your community might one day reach that landmark.  But remember–your community is never “done.”  It’s constantly growing, changing, and evolving–based on the interests of your members.” – NING.com

    Below are roughly 32 [shortcodes] to use in your WordPress website.  These shortcodes work with Premium & Free WordPress websites.  Thanks to WordPress, they are below and can also be located here.


    Display Posts Shortcode

    The Display Posts Shortcode allows you to fine-tune the posts you wish to display on a page.

    Add the shortcode in a post or page, and use the arguments to query based on tag, category, post type, and many other possibilities.

    New posts will be displayed within one hour of publishing.

    Examples

    This will list the 20 most recent posts with the tag ‘Advanced’.

    This will list the 10 most recent posts tagged ‘Advanced’ and display a post image using the ‘Thumbnail’ size.

    This will list every post in the Must Read category, in alphabetical order, with the date appended to the end.

    This will display posts as an ordered list. Options are ul for unordered lists (default), ol for ordered lists, or div for divs.

    This will display only the posts with an ID of 14 and 3.

    Default: empty
    Example:

    include_date

    Default: empty
    Example

    include_excerpt
    Include the post’s excerpt after the title (and date if provided).
    Default: empty
    Example:

    offset
    The number of posts to pass over
    Default: 0
    Example:

    order
    Specify whether posts are ordered in descending order (DESC) or ascending order (ASC).

    Example:

    Default: publish
    Example:

    Use these parameters to do advanced taxonomy queries. Use ‘taxonomy’ for the taxonomy you’d like to query, ‘tax_term’ for the term slug (or terms) you’d like to include, and ‘operator’ to change how the query uses those terms (most likely this field will not be needed).
    Default: ‘taxonomy’ = empty , ‘tax_term’ = empty , ‘tax_operator’ = ‘IN’
    Example:

    wrapper

    Default: ul
    Example:

    ↑ Table of Contents ↑

    Multiple Taxonomy Queries

    While most people will only ever need a single taxonomy query, this shortcode supports an infinite number of taxonomy queries. Let’s say you wanted to get all posts in category “featured” and also tagged “homepage”. We’ll use a shortcode that looks like this:

    You can string as many of those as you like, just start the count at 2. In the field listing below, replace (count) with an actual number.

    Here’s the available fields:

    taxonomy_(count)
    Which taxonomy to query
    Default: empty

    tax_(count)_term
    Which terms to include (if more than one, separate with commas)
    Default: empty

    tax_(count)_operator
    How to query the terms (IN, NOT IN, or AND)
    Default: IN

    tax_relation
    Describe the relationship between the multiple taxonomy queries (should the results match all the queries or just one of them). Available options: AND and OR
    Default: AND

    ↑ Table of Contents ↑

    Image Alignment

    A common request is display a list of posts with title, excerpt, and the thumbnail aligned to the right. Here’s the shortcode you might use:

    This includes the excerpt, adds an image of the “thumbnail” size (you can customize the image sizes in Settings > Media), and tells it to present the list without bullets.

    In order to get the image floating to the right, add this to your custom CSS file (requires the WordPress.com Premium or WordPress.com Business upgrade):

    .display-posts-listing .alignleft {
        float: right;
        margin: 0 0 5px 5px;
    }

    ↑ Table of Contents ↑

    Limits

    The Display Posts Shortcode has a limit of 100 posts displayed.

Multiple Taxonomy Queries

While most people will only ever need a single taxonomy query, this shortcode supports an infinite number of taxonomy queries. Let’s say you wanted to get all posts in category “featured” and also tagged “homepage”. We’ll use a shortcode that looks like this:

You can string as many of those as you like, just start the count at 2. In the field listing below, replace (count) with an actual number.

Here’s the available fields:

taxonomy_(count)
Which taxonomy to query
Default: empty

tax_(count)_term
Which terms to include (if more than one, separate with commas)
Default: empty

tax_(count)_operator
How to query the terms (IN, NOT IN, or AND)
Default: IN

tax_relation
Describe the relationship between the multiple taxonomy queries (should the results match all the queries or just one of them). Available options: AND and OR
Default: AND

.display-posts-listing .alignleft {
    float: right;
    margin: 0 0 5px 5px;
